I have connections to surname PETTIT in Benton Co. I was curious how Emaline GOODWIN, wife of Hector Troy PETTIT, fit in with other Goodwins in northeast Benton Co. Below is what I have... some of it weak. I would appreciate any input/comments from those interested in surname GOODWIN in this corner of Benton Co.

I'm seeking a death date so I can try to find an obituary for Minnie Niederbroecker Knuth, widow of William. She was still living in 1920. I believe I have found her parents' marriage on the IGI, but need confirmation of a German birthplace.
I've branched out to her as a sibling of Anna Niederbroecker Stirtz.
Ref. William Knuth's biography on the Benton County USGENWEBSite: Minnie's sister living in Council Bluffs is Anna Stirtz.
Anna's obit mentions no siblings.
Can anyone lead me to an obituary for Minnie?
